Former Katikati Library, Katikati

The Katikati library was housed in a number of locations until this building was completed in 1913. It was built with publicly raised funds, and this together with its role as a social amenity, gives it local social significance. It served the district until a Memorial Hall was opened in 1954-5. The building is a small plain vernacular structure.
